    Well-written and complex tale!

    I did something with this book I don’t normally do because I didn’t know how I felt about this book and what to say: I read what others were saying before I wrote my review. I have to say upfront that this was not really my type of book. I try very hard not to read books that aren’t my type because I feel it’s hard to give a review to something that isn’t your genre/type/etc. to others that do like that. I was on the fence about reading this, and I should have stayed there. However, I’ll say what I think those who would like it need to hear. As with all the books I’ve read by Seanan McGuire, this book was well-written, the characters were all multi-faceted and complex, and the plot was extremely interesting (if this is your type of plot; I can see that even if it isn’t my type). I did think the book was longer than it needed to be, but maybe that was just me. One thing I always find with this author is that her writings are very unique; she has a great imagination. So, yes, I do recommend this book for those who like this type and was provided a complimentary copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

    Original and unpredictable.

    I have to admit that Middlegame is not the type of book I would usually read. However, I am a big fan of Seanan's Urban Fantasy the October Daye series, and after being intrigued by the blurb of this book, I wanted to give it a go. I try to be as adventurous as I can and try out new things. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book. In the beginning it was a bit confusing and I had to get used to all the unfamiliar terms, characters, world, and the set-up of the book. But after a while I really got into the story and it started making more sense to me. Middlegame is set in the modern world where alchemists want to have the highest powers in the world. And one in particular will do anything to have ultimate control and power. I am going to be honest with you guys, I have no idea how to explain this book, so just be satisfied with the blurb. I think it's better to go in blind and discover everything by yourself anyways. I absolutely loved the bond between Roger and Dodger. It was obvious that these two were meant for greatness, but like you and I they have internal struggles and doubts that hold them back. I loved that they weren't perfect and had their own flaws and faults. This made me connect with them better. Middlegame was very unpredictable and I loved all the twists and turns. It had me on the edge of my seat at times, and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. I was 100% invested in the story, and I was happy the book was 500+ pages. Seanan took her time to fully tell the story and made me fall in love with the world and characters she created.
